Re: [Bug 1049466] Re: Need support of Ralink RT3290 wifi support


Thanks. The build went OK (after I installed dkms) but the install 
failed because xx was in use -- see output below. Should I modify 
pre_install.sh and if so, how? And which commands do I then run, and in 
which order? Is it a case of editing dkms.conf, commenting out or 
removing the first 3 lines and re-running from the dkms install command?

Sorry to be such a pain but I'm learning all the time -- it keeps my 
71-year old brain busy!

You may override by specifying --force.
